Swallows Tattoo Ring
by Ella Green Jewellery
Inspired by olden-times sailors' swallow tattoos, this ring is pretty but tough. The swallow was a symbol used by sailors to show off their sailing experience. Legend holds that since swallows return to the same location every year to mate and nest, the swallow would guarantee the sailor's safe return home. A sailor would have one swallow tattooed before setting out on a journey, and the second swallow tattooed at the end of their voyage, upon return to their home port.
